Body off build, beautifully completed. Power by Chevy ZZ5400/400 small block crate fast burn aluminum motor.The truck is very quick and smoothly responsive with a 700R4 OD transmission, air, custom gauge package and audio. Custom leather interior matching two-tone pearl paint in BMW Estoril Blue and Silver. Custom exhaust, steel wheels, banjo steering wheel and oak inlaid bed with relocated gas tank beneath rear deck.
